reading windows event logs

Posted by mikemen (mikemen), 29 July 2005
Does TCL have any commands that I can use to read windows event logs entries?
If so, what are they?

Some URLs for you:

This is the TWAPI extension to Tcl that's available for download from Sourceforge.

The command that reads an event log in this extension is eventlog_read.

Access to the event log requires a handle returned by the eventlog_open command. A handle allows either read or write access, but never both. Events can then be read from an event log through the eventlog_read command. The returned event record can be formatted using eventlog_format_message and eventlog_format_category.
